I am not a car fan at all. For me a car has to have 4 wheels, a steering wheel, and breaks. If on the top of that it looks nice and is comfortable, then I am happy.

Nevertheless I went to the Waterloo Lion where an old timer race took place. I like to see these old cars and imagine how the streets looked like with them and their high speed of a few km or miles !

Old Napoleon watched over them

Must be nice to drive at a high speed of 20 km (12 miles)/h !


or driving around in this elegant sportscar !

But this little thing, a Fiat 500 is still to be seen on the streets ! They must be at least 35 to 40 years old by now. I found it on the parking place.

Oh, I love that little Fiat!! I am like you, I only need a reliable car, everything else is just unimportant.
Nice old timers!
Slowly catching up, it's been a long time!!
Have a wonderful Sunday :)

My first car was a fiat 500! I bought it myself after working all a summer at beach! And then I was using it for two years every day driving to the university!!! It was the good time! I had it when I met Pierre in a student party!

What fun! I'm not much of a car fan either. I am a people fan though, and it's always fun to watch the people at the old time thingy's.

Such cool old cars! I like to see them on the road. We can't see many of them on our Singapore roads.

Me too....I agree with you about cars. If it has an engine, I'm happy.

Happy day to you dear Gattina.

My father has a 'classic car' so I am familiar with these kid of gatherings. That is his free time hobby, going to shows with his 2 corvairs!!

I love those old cars and if I see anyone driving them on the highway, I always give them a toot and a wave.

Oh I LOVE that little Fiat! So cute! Reminds me of the little Mini Coopers that are popular now... only the Fiat is cuter!

Pamela said...

I echo that sentiment. Just give me a comfortable reliable sensible car. I don't even care what color it is (well, not purple or chartreuse)

Great car shots. The fiat is awesome.
